Every time that I come to Tulum I feel that I miss something if I don't go to Hemingway. Food is excellent and the terrace is something special. Try the mariscada, home made pasta with fresh fish. The price is ok, totally aligned with the...More

My husband and I had lunch here in early March. I liked that the menu was limited to a few choices, but since it's not written down, you have no idea of the prices. I had two glasses of the house white wine, which was...More

We visited for Sunday lunch. It’s run by an Italian with no menu; you select from what is available on the day and we chose seafood pasta and frito misto. We were delighted with both, fresh, beautifully presented and, we felt, reasonably priced for the...More

The food was beautifully presented and tasty. It was on the main tourist row but still much more expensive than anywhere else. The glasses of wine were a 4 oz pour. Standard in the states is 6 oz. I never had anything less than 6...More

Hemingway has a concept of not having written menues which is a terrible idea when being understaffed and the staff does not speak English. But this is only one of the issues. We arrived early at 6.45 without a reservation and were told that we...More

We arrive and after 10 minutes of no one coming to our table we finally flag someone down just to get water. We ask for flat and get sparkling. Another 10 minutes before someone comes to explain the menu (there is none to hand out)....More

We stopped by for lunch and were underwhelmed. The margaritas, which we always look forward to, were watery and disappointing. We had a salad which was very fresh and some delicious grilled shrimp. The rest of the meal was average and overall we found it...More

My husband and I were there in April and had beer with our lunch. I believe they had wine and cocktails as well.

Small and nice restaurant where Hemingway and 'recommended reservation for dinner. The Chef Luke and Nicola, Italian, will present you with love and care with their fish dishes, homemade pasta, seafood, bread, cake and a nice selection of desserts always home-made with fresh ingredients.We use only fresh fish, ripe tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil. For breakfast in the morning, bread, dessert of the day and homemade jam. The restaurant is ocean front and has a nice big terrace on the beach! Only 5 tables.
